ahr:127 max:143 (sick) shoes: X-talon 212 (blk/flro) - Nov17
Chilly jog around my parents neighbourhood.
In fairness to the country, there is quite a bit of snow - but a shame that THREE fell races plus the orienteering were all cancelled; I thought I'd arranged quite a lot of contingency there.
Hopefully they will all be rearranged so as to not clash though - then there would be an upside!
Running - Offroad (Brooksie's Mystery Recce) 1:38:45  13.33 km (7:24 / km) +248m 6:47 / km
ahr:143 max:170 (sick) shoes: X-Talon 225 (July 2017)
Interesting concept for a race; unseen beforehand, get given a map but also guided around the route, then 10 mins after everyone has finished, race around the same route.
So a bit like a very serious negative split...
It's Beast from the East MkII this weekend - snowing throughout. Hands were painfully icy whole way around; otherwise was fine though. Constantly snowing and very windy. Snow wasn't settling and ground was in reasonable condition for most of the route - which was ok but not massively interesting.
Probably about 40 entrants. I tried to put in minimal effort for this half but was still relatively near the front, especially near the beginning.
Got very little sleep last night (which is unusual for me) because of this horrendous cold - Lemsip in the morning at 6am perked me up a bit - very nearly didn't come to the race but glad I did as felt ok whilst actually running.
Running - Offroad race (Brooksie's Mystery Tour) 1:04:34  13.1 km (4:56 / km) +242m 4:31 / km
ahr:148 max:167 (sick) shoes: X-Talon 225 (July 2017)
Toyed with the idea of running round with and then outsprinting whoever was at the front, but then they announced that the race time would also include both getting our shoes on again (outside after the recce) and taking them off again and I decided I needed quite a big lead in order to have time to remove them. Took a bit longer than other people at the start to get them on, too, since I didn't want to have to stop and re-tie later.
Fears unfounded, low quality field so ended up well ahead. Remembered the course better than expected, barely had to glance at the map. Soup and bread included afterwards, and won some beer. Good day out, glad I came despite feeling rotten both before and afterwards!

Hoping not too ill to run tomorrow.
Running - Road/Track (Easy jog) 26:43  5.24 km (5:06 / km) +84m 4:43 / km
ahr:141 max:159 (sick) shoes: Hoka Cavu
My knee hurt again yesterday, but we stopped to regroup a couple of times and I did I different stretch each time. After the ITB stretch my knee was mysteriously fine for a bit.
Did a couple of mins ITB stretching before running tonight and it felt much better.
Will make that tens-of-minutes before the race on Saturday and fingers crossed it will be ok.
Lemsip is gradually working.
Similar to getting back from Japan, probably picked up something on the plane.
Still, Lemsip will cure it. Lemsip cures everything.
Running - Offroad (MH Fell Training) 1:37:56  12.93 km (7:34 / km) +639m 6:04 / km
(sick) shoes: X-Talon 212 (May 17)
Despite the awful cold felt ok on the run. Got back and felt sorry for myself though, so ate quite a lot of American chocolate.
Nice evening and good to be running in the warm and dry! Apparently it's going to get cold again this weekend, though.
Did loads of admin.
